Roads from the Ashes, by Megan Edwards

RoadTrip America began with a wildfire. In October 1993, thousands of homes were consumed by wind-driven firestorms that raged for two weeks in Southern California. One of the first to go belonged to Mark Sedenquist and Megan Edwards, RTA's founders. In a matter of minutes, all their worldly goods were reduced to four inches of smoldering cinders. Roads from the Ashes is the story of what happened afterwards, a six-year odyssey across North America and onto the Internet as RoadTrip America. Click here to read the first chapter.

Praise for Roads from the Ashes:

"This is a book to stir dreams of distant places, a remarkable journey down unknown roads of travel and self-exploration. Edwards relates the stories of their American adventures and misadventures in the compelling style of a novelist, with humor, drama and brilliant imagery... A journey worth taking."


—Al Martinez, Los Angeles Times

"Edwards is a fine, unpretentious writer with a journalist's nose for a good story. An inspiration..."

Chicago Tribune

"From the mountains to Manhattan, this tapestry of life on the road weaves the best of travel, technology, survival skills, and relationships into an engaging work of art.
